Trusted Geolocation in the Cloud Technical Demonstration


Purpose and Scope

This workshop explains selected security challenges involving Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing technologies and geolocation. It will be a hands-on proof of concept implementation that was designed to address those challenges. NIST has introduced a draft interagency report 7904 titles, Trusted Geolocation in the Cloud: Proof of Concept Implementation (Draft) which provides sufficient details so that organizations can reproduce it if desired. The publication which details this workshop is intended to be a blueprint or template that can be used by the general security community to validate and implement the described proof of concept implementation.

This workshop and IR document has been created for security researchers, cloud computing practitioners, system integrators, and other parties interested in techniques for solving the security problem in question: improving the security of virtualized infrastructure cloud computing technologies by enforcing geolocation restrictions.
